New and Question

Hi everyone - I recently suffered my third miscarriage (two in a row after DD). I was officially diagnosed with IF and was referred to a RE. My doctor gave me a name that he recommends. I trust my doctor but want other options too. I don't know anyone IRL that needed to see this kind of specialist. How did everyone find the doc they wanted? Did anyone use US News Health Reports?

Any other suggestions?

Re: New and Question

  • Welcome and sorry that you're here.  None of us want to be but it's a great place to share with others in the same boat.  I have several friends that did IVF with their first pregnancies so our RE came highly recommended from one of them.  He was also recommended by my Ob/Gyn so that's who we went with.  Are you still in the Cleveland area?  If so, I would recommend UH Fertility Center -
    DD conceived naturally in 2009.  TTC #2 since August 2010.  Praying for guidance as we decide what's next.

    When the world says, "Give up,"

    Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."

  • Hello and welcome. I wish you a very brief stay! 

    My RE was recommended by my OBGYN and after looking up the doc I found out she is one of the best of Boston area. She is part of a great hospital with great reputation. I had other options, but after meeting her I felt like we can work well together. For me it worked out the first time, I got my dd. Still waiting on my second miracle.

    I wish you best of luck with your journey!

  • I went with the RE that my OBG recommended. I know I looked on a website for SART for stas on each clinic.  In the end, what mattered more to me was the time and access I had to a nurse or RE and how their bedside manner was with me.

  • I'm so sorry that you are going through this. When my ob recommended my RE I didn't even question it. I got an awesome vibe and then later I realized he is one of the best in the area. Good luck!

  • Early in our marriage we were referred to an RE.  We went and I could not stand him.  Very rude.  Had no bedside manner.  Our OB/GYN referred us quicker than a year so we waited.  The second time we were referred, we met with the workers at the clinic and felt sooooo much more comfortable.  This time I asked to be referred back there.  Unfortunately, my favorite nurse is not there.  But, I still really like the nurse we have worked with.
